Singer George Michael has pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while unfit through drugs at Brent magistrates court.

The pop superstar, 43, was due to stand trial but has now pleaded guilty to the charge after appearing in court today.

Michael was arrested in October after police were called to an obstruction caused by a car at a set of traffic lights.

The former Wham! frontman arrived at court this morning dressed in a black blazer and jeans and appeared confident as he walked into the court.

After confirming his real name - Georgios Panayiotou - Michael was asked to enter his plea which was eventually given as guilty after a period of confusion and discussion with the singer's lawyer.

The singer is due to play the first ever concert at the new Wembley Stadium on June 9th as part of a wider European tour.

Michael is scheduled to perform tracks from his best-selling greatest hits album TwentyFive which includes tracks from the Wham! era as well as songs from Michael's solo career.
